1 (6 ounce) can
crab meat, drained
sharp processed cheese spread
chopped fresh parsley
English muffins, split in half
I have made this yummy appetizer for at least 10-15 yrs. The only difference with my recipe is I use 1 can tiny shrimp. One 6 oz. jar Kraft olde english cheese in jar, 1 1/2 tsp. mayo, 1/2 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 cup butter melted.(must be butter). Blend all and stir in shrimp at end so they don't mushed. Top split english muffins and broil until golden then slice in quarters. Some times I use 1 less muffin to get a thicker topping. These are such a big hit, I always end up with an empty platter! Fabulous!! Thanks Ellen for sharing!
I changed this recipe, because I didn't have an oven to warm this. I served it on a french baguette, which I warmed in the microwave for 15 seconds. Then I spread the crab mixture over the bread and warmed everything in the microwave for 2 minutes on the low setting. I took this to work and it was a hit. The crab mixture was outstanding.
This is a good treat to make up and then freeze. I shredded 'real' cheese and used 'real' crab meat from the legs. My 18 month old just loves these.
This dish delivered! I had to make another batch to meet demand.
I had these the other night at a Christmas buffet. They were just great! I asked the hostess for the recipe and I made a bunch today to serve for Christmas tomorrow. I hope mine taste as good as hers. So tasty and so easy to prepare..
My mom used to make these, tastes just like hers! Works with tuna instead of crabmeat too. I make these as a starter if friends are coming for dinner - gives them something to nibble while I finish up in the kitchen. Always gone faster than I need them to be! A big hit with my seven year old also.
A great appetizer and so easy. I use shredded cheese rather then processed, and they turn out great!
This was so easy, and so good, that I will definitely make it again. I gave a few to a coworker at dinner and he wolfed them down. Thanks for a great recipe!
